chimed in. romney is down eight points against obama in ohio in the latest "washington post" poll. in that is bad news because of the fact that no republican candidate has ever taken the white house without care rig the state. but team romney still thinks they are within the margin of error. they are also hoping that ryan can save the ticket. as for president obama, he is dolling out plenty of money in ohio. this is something we see every four years as presidential candidates pay particular at attention to certain swing states. in this case it's president obama with ohio. ohio took home four time as much energy as any other state from the clen energy tax credit and it has the largest loan in the history of the u.s. small business administration. we are back with more bill press live at the break. and as always we are in chat at all of the pieces? >>tv and radio talk show host stephanie miller rounds out current's morning news block. >>you're welcome current tv audience for the visual candy. >>sharp tongue, quick whit and >>you just think th

's targeting two major groups with this new move, women who have a strong preference for president obama in the polls and the everyday american. many of whom are likely suspicious of him right now especially considering his 47% remark and his thoughts that middle class income is about $250,000. this whole campaign switch is a sign romney knows he's in trouble and he can't depend on the debates to turn his poll numbers around. while he's not backtracking on his 47% remark, he does seem to be covering it up a bit. in a q&a session on univision he promised to be president for the 100% and to tackle illegal immigration. he says he's not in favor of mass deportation and that what he means by self-deportation is for people to decide on their own whether to go back home or enter this country legally. but when it comes to specific policy we haven't heard much from him. back with more. stay with us. action. trickle down does not work. in romney's world, cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft. that is a whole bunch of bunk. th
